LCS on Cruise Control in Victory Over Windermere

LAKELAND | If Lakeland Christian School girls soccer goalie Lydia Cagle had a cellphone in her pocket during the game Wednesday night, she could have texted a few friends.
The Vikings’ defense held Windermere Prep to just two shots – one each half – during their entire 6-0 victory over the Lakers in the Class 1A quarterfinals at Vikings Stadium.
“She (Cagle) always gives me glares when we’re in situations like this,” Lakeland Christian head coach Jason Streets said. more

PENSACOLA, Fla. — They call Shakira Duncan “S-Money” and Tina Murray “T-Money.” Should it be “M-Money” for Mia Persson?
The Swedish midfielder punctuated a superb performance Sunday with two goals as the Gulf Coast Texans outclassed a weary, shorthanded Aztec MA side on their home field to claim their first Women’s Premier Soccer League championship.
Persson, from NAIA powerhouse Lindsey Wilson College, scored a 21st-minute opener, then completed a three-goals-in-10-minutes stretch midway thyrough the second half for the Texans (11-0-0) that ended any remaining doubt.
Danish forward Ida Gregersen and Jamaican star Duncan also tallied, and Murray, Duncan’s countrywoman, ignited from the left flank an attack that put up 23 shots (to five for Aztec) in a comprehensive performance at Ashton Brosnaham Stadium. more

Terrones provided offense

SEBRING - When Lake Placid forward Yuribia Terrones was on the move with the ball, good things usually happened for the Green Dragons girls soccer squad.
Terrones, a four-year varsity starter, scored a team- and county-high 30 goals this past season and broke the Lake Placid school record with 70 goals in her stellar high school career.
Terrones, who also had 15 assists, would have scored more goals in her final year on the pitch, but was moved to midfielder to help out the Lake Placid defense on numerous occasions.
"Yuribia was a captain and team player and would do whatever it took to help us," said Green Dragon girls soccer coach John Merlo. "She would have scored a bunch more goals if we hadn't of moved her, but she just wanted to help us win. more
